Now, Jessica Jones uses her gift (or curse? She's not always sure which it is) in her work as a private investigator. She still has friends from her old life, but the complications that come with different life choices generally mean it's easier to go it alone.

Alias follows Jessica Jones through her day-to-day, which brushes up against the less glamorous side of life with super powers far more often than she'd prefer. She bridges the gap between the Avengers, lauded on screens both large and small, and the people who live on the outskirts of society.

As you can probably guess from the title of this post, I'm reviewing the first 4 volumes of this series in a single go. While I find the comic book format choppy and disjointed a lot of times, I've also found that they tend to read better for me in these larger chunks. Alias is not an exception in this. I picked these books up after getting pulled in by the Netflix series, and was not disappointed. While there are deviations between the two series, after reading the books, I want to applaud Netflix for keeping their version of the story true to it's dark, cynical, and complicated origins.
